Fantasia on a Random Sentence from a Language-Learning App

I  hear voices in the garden,

probably those crazy flowers

dispersing their seed at all hours,

thinking not once of mortal sin.

Shakespeare called it spirit’s expense,

though he referred to men, not plants,

but daisies too want into pants,

in a figured way of speaking;

the flora, too, always seeking

to take their part in nature’s dance.
